The WIHN made my move to DC incredible. Accommodations were great, everything was super close. I loved all of my interactions with this company and they helped me every step of the way. I tell all of my friends about this when they are moving to DC because it really was such a wonderful experience. Highly recommend.
Absolutely loved my experience with the WIHN and everyone I came in contact with throughout my time at Senate Square. The accommodations were amazing compared to where my friends stayed and they just made my entire semester that much easier.
This was the worst agency for an intern sublet we’ve ever used. From the minute we met the woman she was nasty, unprofessional, rude and unhelpful. We had seven girls in an apartment and one had bedbugs and she did nothing for two weeks but keep telling them they would have to pay her $1000. When I contacted the actual Senate square staff directly they apologize profusely and took care of it in 24 hours and was a palled that they had not. We returned the keys she claims she didn’t get them in the dropbox and was trying to charge us. I’m top of that she needs to give us back a week of rent since we had to move out early due to the bedbugs !!!
My experience with WIHN housing has been marked with great overall service, professionalism, and reasonability. The staff are kind and generally accommodating to the needs and requests of residents. The location was fantastic for essentially any intern. If you worked on the hill, it’s only a 20-minute walk. If you worked anywhere else like myself, Union station is a five-minute walk away and getting to my workplace in Virginia only took a half hour. The residence itself was also very nice, I was lucky enough to stay on the top floor and could see the Basilica near Catholic University. The furnishings were well done, and appliances worked perfectly, except for the was her dryer unit. However, a request was made, and a new great-quality unit was installed in short order. The neighborhood WHIN sits in is also very nice, with a Whole Foods (if you can afford it), a Giant grocery store literally one minute from the building, and numerous restaurants along H Street offering a wide range of options. Plus, the apartment has a mini dog park on the roof so there were dogs around all the time, which I loved because dogs are amazing. WIHN was an amazing intern experience with few downsides I noticed, I would recommend them as an great option for interns coming to DC for the first time.
The Washington Intern housing network is amazing ! As an intern, I didn’t expect much coming into DC, how ever I was mistaken when we flew up here . Our apartment is so BIG. You’d think living with six other interns would be a hassle, but it doesn’t feel like it with all of us spaced out with a good kitchen and living room. The staff is so accommodating, Melanie for example is one of the most professional and helpful housing coordinators I have ever met, she constantly reaches out , checks in , and responds to any break down or question in need . I honestly , I’ve lived in other areas with housing companies and I never have had one that not only suits my needs in the actual apartment (that came with furniture and a beautiful balcony ) but a company that provides me with great, reliable service. Only criticism I can give is that sometimes maintenance comes in without notice , but their only responding to a request we would make beforehand .
